Quote of the Day: "Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine." Elvis Presley (January 8, 1935 - August 16, 1977)

Elvis Presley died 34 years ago today, and since then he's been lionized and immortalized, morphing into an iconic celebrity whose popularity continues to transcend age and culture -- and seemingly knows no bounds.  This week, an estimated 20,000 people descended on Elvis' Graceland estate in Memphis, Tenn., the site of his final resting place, to hold a candlelight vigil to remember the man whose trademark sideburns, sequined jump suit and swiveling hips launched countless imitators.
